ROSACEA, A COMMON QUESTION
One of the usual questions in my practice among fair-skinned women between 30 and 60 years old is the uncertainty about the existence or not of rosacea on their skin when they have facial red spots, on the nose or/and cheeks or/ and the chin.
To finish making a correct diagnosis of rosacea, I am going to detail some of the frequently asked questions that I ask patients with this profile:
- ¿The skin on your face turns red with changes in temperature
- ¿Do you drink alcohol How much coffee do you drink per daya?
- ¿worse with stress
- ¿What is your food diet; eat heavy foods or spicy condiments
- ¿take a lot of sun
THE ADVICE I GIVE TO MY PATIENTS
If once the clinical diagnosis is made and I conclude that this patient suffers from rosacea, the most common treatments are creams with metronidazole and ivermectin and oral tetracyclines. In addition, I recommend some changes in habits to help improve the health of my patient's skin; such as improving eating behaviors, avoiding sun exposure and avoiding irritating cosmetics or corticosteroid creams.
I also suggest always adding products for sensitive skin with natural ingredients to your skincare routine and adding asun photoprotector every morning before leaving home.
FACIAL ROUTINE FOR SKIN WITH ROSACEA
I recommend the Masderm Triphasic Facial Masderm as an adjunct to the clinical treatment prescribed for the patient with Rosacea, since it improves the hydration of the facial skin and homogenizes the color. In the morning, after applying the Triphasic Serum, we can complete the routine with the Masderm Masderm 50+ Sunscreen
